Well-known author Mark Twain relocated to Hartford, Connecticut in 1871. He made the move to be closer to his publisher. The house he rented was in Nook Farm, which is a literary community.

The community is located at the western edge of Hartford. He and his family purchased land on Farmington Avenue in Nook Farm and hired an architect from New York City to design a house.
As the house was being built many people thought it looked rather odd but it reflected the author’s heart and soul. Twain lived and worked in the house from 1874 to 1891. During this time he wrote two books “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” and “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court.”
